Biomedical engineers design and develop equipment, devices and systems used in the health care industry.

Foothill students receive practical, hands-on learning and a chance to work on real-life projects. The program was featured in the San Jose Mercury News last fall, when students designed a device to help a child with a disability move his arms. 

Biomedical devices classes include:

  • Engineering Graphics
